One of the best things about vehicle wraps is that they protect your vehicle while making it look great. But although vehicle wraps are durable and rarely need repairs, there are a few things that can speed up the wear and tear. Here are mistakes you can avoid to make sure your vehicle wraps stay in good condition.
Mistake 1: Forgetting to Clean
Just because your vehicle wrap is made of durable vinyl, don’t forget that it still needs regular cleanings. For light dust and dirt, you can easily wipe it off with a soft cloth. Otherwise, using gentle dish soap and a rinse will keep it clean. Air drying is fine, but make sure not to let any other liquid spills, such as oil, sit but wipe it up right away.
Mistake 2: Going too Harsh
Another equally bad mistake is to clean too harsh with your vehicle wrap. Using rough abrasives, power washing, or taking your vehicle through an automatic car wash can all damage it. Also, be careful that the cleaners you use aren’t too harsh. If you’re not sure, then test it out on a small section of the wrap first.
Mistake 3: Not Keeping up with Repairs
Most of the time your vehicle wrap will hold up against things that would scratch a regular paint job, such as flying bits of gravel that kick up on the highway. But if you do notice a small tear here or there, then you shouldn’t ignore it. With just a simple vinyl patch and a couple tools, you can easily make small repairs to your vehicle wrap on your own. And for larger tears you can take it in for a professional patch up. But remember, it’s better to address issues while their small than to let a tiny tear slowly open up and potentially ruin your vehicle wrap.
